YogaRetreatSLCC2021

Whether you’re a yoga devotee or a novice, a seasoned singer, or shy about your voice, we have a special place for you in our circle!
This will be a day of exploration and restoration outside on the beautiful campus of Silver Lake, as we focus on using our bodies and voices as meditation in order to arrive at deeper peace and understanding. Join a phenomenal group of women as we reconnect with the sacred in ourselves and each other.

 

 


 

OpenHouse 

Sunday, May 16, 1-5 pm


A visit to Silver Lake before camp is the best way for a first-time camper (conferee) to know what to expect — you might even run into a new friend who will be in the same conference this summer! We’ll provide the tours and s’mores; you bring your questions. 

Register for a 2-hour time slot and join us for a guided tour of the site.

Each tour group will have a limited number of people and will fill the entire two hours.

Register at:  silverlakect.org

 

We will be following all current local, state, and federal safety guidance. Masks and physical distancing are required.

This Coming Summer Consider:

 

For Youth:
Silver Lake Summer Conferences
 SLCC 2007logo

Each summer, Silver Lake continues the proud tradition of being the vibrant church camp for up to 1300 fourth-graders through high school-age young people. These 2-week-long "conferences" offer "once-in-a-lifetime experiences, over and over" to several generations of youth, helping to shape future leaders and spirited community-builders everywhere.

Silver Lake has become a sacred place to so many people, young and old. We invite you to come away from the busyness of everyday life and find out what is so special about this ministry of God's love.

 

Silver Lake Summer Youth Conferences, Sharon, CT

 
 

The popular 2-week-long experience for youth now in grades 4-12.

 

The Silver Lake Summer Conference Brochure is now out and available at the church or online here: Silver Lake. This year there are a number of new offerings.
Summer Conferences at Silver Lake are open to those entering grades 4 through 12 in the fall.

 

Each conference begins on Sunday afternoon and runs through the second Saturday after breakfast.

 

There are a variety of themes for each age group.

There are a limited number of brochures located on the Opportunity Table in Fellowship Hall as well as one post on the Youth bulletin board.
